GTA V on the PC has plenty of customization options for graphics

Rockstar Games surprises with a bunch of graphical customization in the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V launches on the PC in just a few days time, but PC Gamer has received an early look at the title on the machine we've all been waiting for it on: the PC.


The graphic customization seems nice and detailed, where you can see the amount of VRAM required as you adjust your settings. Under that, the resolution scales up to 4K (and hopefully beyond, as we'll be testing in a few days) with the aspect ratio, refresh rate and output monitor all adjustable.


As you can see from the image above, you can adjust the population density, population variety and distance scaling. Under that we have our usual graphics settings: texture/shader/shadow and reflection quality, reflection MSAA can be tweaked, water/particles/grass quality can all be tweaked, and then we have soft shadows and post FX. There are also plenty of AA options, with FXX, MSAA and NVIDIA's TXAA that can be toggled and played with.


One of the surprising options is that you have raw mouse input, which will have PC gamers thanking the Rockstar Gods.
